It's not road rage, it's rage, and it often manifests in a violence towards those unaware of having done anything wrong. In this instance, a woman gives a courtesy honk to let another driver know she is pulling out, and he follows her to where she steps from her car and attacks her with a crowbar, breaking both her arms.
I don't ever remember hearing stories like this twenty-five years ago when I was the age of the young man who attacked this woman, and I worry that the world we are living in today is creating the conditions for more rage, what with its emphasis on markets, competition, hubris, division, exclusionary tactics...
Tired now. Tired of the world and its cruelties. Time to get back on the high road, put some apologies together.
